KU Libraries Diversity Committee's Recipe of the Week Archive
Top 'o the morning to you! (Or afternoon, rather)
This week's recipe is to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! I know it's next week, but when you read this recipe you'll see why I'm sending it out a week in advance...
This week's recipe os for Corned Beef and Cabbage. This isn't an easy one, because this recipe tells you how to corn your own beef! (Forget the storebought!) It has to be prepared at least one week in advance because it has to sit in the refridgerator for SEVEN DAYS!
I know this isn't the most convenient recipe, but I thought it was interesting nonetheless.
